ABSTRACT
This article examines the nature of journalism in the internet era. The Internet has democratized the ability to express viewpoint and reach an audience, though some critics would contend without any set of standards or qualifications. However, the acceptance of bloggers continues, as many of them are gaining access to media events normally reserved for mainstream journalists. Ethics and standards are still a concern to many people such as Professor David Hazinski who feels much of online journalism is simply gossip.
